“It was great!  She educated our students on leadership and gave them prompts to reflect on their next steps as activists”

On Leadership Keynote

Bianca Thomas-Veal,

Diversity Assistant

Ursuline College

“Alex contributed to making our 25th annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr celebration an excellent one.  Attendees remarked about how powerful her poems and delivery were-that they incited emotional connections and reactions to what she was reciting.  Alex seamlessly connected with the audience during her performance, which then resulted in a standing ovation at the end.  Consider having her recite her poetry at your next event-I doubt you’ll be disappointed.”

On Poetry Feature

Dr. Talia Carroll

Dir. of Marcus Garvey Cultural Center

University of Northern Colorado

“The workshop was deeply moving and thought provoking.  I had never participated in a creative writing workshop, and my students were deathly afraid to write and share…but by the end we had cried together, laughed together, and supported one another through it all.  Alex truly brought us on a journey just as she promised!”

On Writing Workshop

Andre Lynch,

Assoc. Dean of Stud. Equity & Inclusion 

Wells College
